A Mexican and 3 Chileans, all who lived in France, are among the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks that took the lives of 129 and injured over 350.

Michelli Gil Jaimez, who grew up in Tuxpan in the Mexican state of Veracruz, died in the recent terrorist attacks in Paris. Gil Jaimez had been living in France for 8 years and was going to be married in 3 weeks.

San Martín Nuñez had been exiled from Chile during the dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet, and her daughter was born in France.
